​More self-care. Less stress. More money.

​Is ​owning your business making you happy?

  • Are you a female business owner?
  • ​Do you feel stressed, lonely or overwhelmed?
  • ​Are you taking care of everyone but yourself?
  • Do you need help growing your business?
  • Would you like education designed specifically for female ​solo entrepreneurs?
  • Would you enjoy being part of an online community of female business owners who understand?


​The Serene Solopreneur community can help!

​Our mission is to help female solo entrepreneurs to:

  • Take better care of themselves.
  • Reduce overwhelm by providing education and support designed specifically for female entrepreneurs.
  • ​Grow your businesses so you can make more money.

The Serene Solopreneur is an online community ​for ​women ​entrepreneurs who run home-based businesses, in addition to other responsibilities. ​We interact using daily Facebook prompts and through four live ​webinars every month. ​Our members love the education, as well as being a member of a community ​designed specifically to support women entrepreneurs.


What is a ​Serene Solopreneur​?

​​The Serene Solopreneur began as a online community to support women entrepreneurs. It is a ​place where home-based female ​​entrepreneurs can ​"let down their guard" and find education and emotional support -- without leaving their home! ​


The Serene Solopreneur recognizes that ​women entrepreneurs have more responsibilities than just their business, that life can be messy, and that work sometimes takes a "back seat" to other obligations. The women entrepreneur members of the Serene Solopreneur community are committed to growing their ​businesses; increasing their wealth and personal power; and taking care of themselves and their loved ones. 


In addition to providing ​online educational events each month that are designed specifically ​to educate and support women entrepreneurs, we ​are a community of women supporting women. Our discussions take a deep dive into subjects that ​include running a business, organizing a household, and making time for yourself.

Our Monthly Live Events

​Running a home-based business ​can be lonely.

​Why You Should Join the Serene Solopreneur Community

  • check
    ​You're looking for support. We have a private, moderated Facebook group designed ​to support women entrepreneurs with home-based businesses. The group includes daily themes (such as Motivation Monday or Tech Tuesday) that encourage members to share what works for them. We also have days that focus on self-care (Wellness Wednesday) and encourage ​members to take risks (Fearless Friday). Members are encouraged to ask questions, to share challenges, and to post celebrations.
  • check
    You're looking for encouragement. You will be part of a community of ​women supporting women, facilitated by a well-trained coach. What makes this group different is that we all have commitments beyond our business. Most of us are juggling roles as parents, spouses, children, community members and more (including, of course, being pet owners). Our events are designed to provide encouragement and support. In addition, a daily motivational quote is posted in our Facebook group to help lift your spirits.
  • check
    ​You need education relevant to ​women entrepreneurs. While it's awesome to understand Amazon's business model, it's not very helpful for a one-woman business. Our education centers on topics that are directly related to being a female solopreneur who works from home. These include managing your time, stress, money, marketing, self-care and other obligations.
  • check
    You ​feel isolated. Being a ​female ​entrepreneur can be ​lonely, especially if you are home-based and your biggest weekly adventure is grocery shopping. The Serene Solopreneur is committed to building a community. All of our events are conducted online using Zoom. You will be able to see the presenters and (in most cases) the other participants. Members are encouraged to participate in live events and to develop relationships with each other.
  • check
    You need something positive in your life. Let's face it ... it's easy to get depressed over politics, school shootings, global warming, the economy, and pretty much everything else on the news. While the Serene Solopreneur community recognizes the importance of being politically active, we also know that having successful businesses will increase our power. The Serene Solopreneur community is designed to ​keep ​women entrepreneurs in a positive space so that you can focus on your business.
  • check
    You have been shamed by coaches for not doing enough. Many of the top industry coaches are extroverted males who have "people" to handle their lives. While their advice to "Give 110% to your business every day" is admirable, they do not understand that many women entrepreneurs are juggling ​responsibilities and that, unfortunately, business does not always come first. The goal of the Serene Solopreneur community is to help celebrate what we are getting done -- not shame ​female entrepreneurs for not doing enough.

​It's easy to find information on how to run a business, but not much of it applies to ​female entrepreneurs who have home-based businesses. The Serene Solopreneur provides education and support around mindset, technology and systems that will help support women entrepreneurs. Our goal is to help you build your business -- and make your life easier.

​Why You Should NOT join the Serene Solopreneur Community

  • check
    You're ​a guy. Sorry. This group is for women only.
  • check
    ​​You've got it all figured out. Your personal and business lives integrate seamlessly. You never "drop the ball" and are a shining example of "doing it all" to your family and friends.
  • check
    You find running your business to be easy. Despite being inundated with information, you easily select what is relevant and helpful -- and ignore the rest.
  • check
    You always fix your hair and makeup. Even on days you don't see clients.
  • check
    Your work area is uncluttered and organized. You manage all aspects of your business with total ease. You get everything accomplished during work hours, so your business obligations never intrude on your personal life.
  • check
    Your life is free of distractions. Nothing keeps you from running your business or meeting your goals. Pets, children, parents and telemarketers leave you alone. You are 100 percent focused on your work.
  • check
    You easily pop into "work mode" every day. You feel passionate about what you're doing and can't wait to get started on your day.
  • check
    You prioritize your own self-care. You come first, ahead of over your personal and business obligations. You exercise regularly, drink enough water, and get enough sleep.
  • check
    You expect perfection. This is not a group where the founder (or our members) have all the answers or whose ​lives run like ​well-oiled machines. We are women entrepreneurs who are committed to helping each other. We share our challenges, offer solutions, and ​try to remember our ​sense of humor.
  • check
    You aren't an animal lover. ​Serene Solopreneurs apologetically love our pets. They are some of the best supporters in a home-based business. Posting pictures of furry friends is strongly encouraged.
  • check
    You don't use Facebook. While it's still possible to get a lot of value out of the Serene Solopreneur community if you don't have Facebook, it is the primary way that we communicate.

​Become a Serene Solopreneur

​The Serene Solopreneur community is unique because we support ​women entrepreneurs who ​run home-based businesses, ​in addition to having other responsibilities in their home or community. We provide encouragement, education and support specifically for female entrepreneurs by hosting Live events and through ​our ​moderated Facebook group.

​Our vibrant Facebook group has two components that are designed to support women entrepreneurs. Every day has a theme (such as "Wellness Wednesday" or "Fearless Friday") to inspire you to improve your health or your business. Every evening we post a motivational quote that will uplift and inspire you. In between, you'll enjoy interaction with your fellow female entrepreneurs.
